Overview

Examine remarkable historical photographs—chosen from the world-famous Frith collection—that date back to the 1860s, along with pictures of the same scenes today, and you'll marvel at the transformation.

From the seaside and countryside to greater London: this chronicle captures Britain in incomparable scope and richness.
